8 Things That Happen When You Look Really Young

You have to bring your ID everywhere.

8 Things That Happen When You Look Really Young

Growing up, I have always looked much younger than my age. I didn't think much of it, until I got to college and realized that the people around me look like real adults, and I look far from it. Here are 8 things that happen when you look really young:

1. People ask what grade you're in.

When you say you're a college student they don't believe you.

2. You could never get a fake ID.

People don't even believe your actual age, there's no way you could get away with a fake ID.

3. Your parents still make you sit at the "kids table" at family parties.

4. Looking younger than everyone in your family.

Your 13 year old cousin looks older than you.

5. When you go to see an R rated movie, they ask to see your ID.

How is it possible people don't think you are older than 17?!

6. People genuinely look confused when you pull out your car keys.

7. Buying something and the cashier assumes you're paying with cash, and when you give them your debit card they look shocked.

Or you do pay in cash, and they check to make sure your 20 dollar bill isn't fake.

8. You got the kids menu at restaurants for way longer than you should've.

You either got the kids menu, or your waiter awkwardly looked at you for a solid five minutes before handing you a menu.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
